Addressing the legalities of workplace illness in California

California is home to many types of businesses, factories, institutions and facilities, all with different workplace environments. Some jobs typically include more inherent risks than others. Although many people have heard of (or experienced) accidents on the job, some might be surprised to learn how easily a workplace illness can occur.

Suffering an occupational illness can greatly impede one's ability to perform work-related duties. Sometimes, everyday life becomes affected as well when a worker is so ill that living assistance is needed in order to function. An employee who has become ill because of hazardous working conditions may have questions about how to pursue claims for financial relief.

Asthma conditions, skin disorders and vision or hearing impairment are some of the most common work-related illnesses in today's business arena. Thousands of workers file reports every year, claiming their illnesses were caused by current or past working conditions. Employers are obligated to provide as safe and healthy a work environment as possible for their employees.

The law firm of Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld has provided personalized service and effective representation for many a client who has suffered due to a workplace illness in California.
